Him: Oh mum, why??? Like that’s not going to scar me or anything… Me: Quiet. It’s art! For Debbie’s Six Word Saturday!
I heard the awful news yesterday afternoon. A simple text message came from my husband to let me know to stay away from London Bridge. Another one let me know he was safe. “Be good to keep away from London Bridge on your way back. Shooting apparently” was all it said. We were heading home […]
I still cannot believe we are actually here! It feels like I am going to wake up soon and find myself back in Sydney. I’d walk to the kitchen, have a glass of water and call my husband to tell him of the vivid dream I had. It doesn’t quite feel real yet. For Debbie’s […]
So here we are. After a long flight we are finally here on the other side of the world. It is cold and wet and fresh. The days get dark early and light later in the morning. Our second day was spent house hunting. In the grey twilight, I met a friendly couple who passed […]

My husband has got a job overseas. He will be leaving for three months to work on the news. When conflict and its aftermath hits, when politics shift in a certain direction, my husband will be there to capture those stories and tell the rest of the world. It’s been an opportunity he’s been seeking […]
For Debbie’s Six Word Saturday!
It was a long flight. I can always tell by the number of inflight movies I end up watching before we touch down. This was about a three movie and one documentary trip. We spent a wonderful week in Hawaii with my parents and my brother’s family. The sky was blue. The sea was warm. […]
I didn’t know my grandmother very well. She lived half a world away in South Korea. They say she was beautiful. They say she was organised and kind. I wish I knew her better. But I ran out of time. Via the Daily Post Photo Challenge #52: Regret
